We stayed at Divi Southwinds and walked across to Dover Beach. Lots of shade and beach chairs are readily available. The water is calm and warm. Thoroughly enjoyed my time at this beach.

It was nice to relax on the beach with a cocktail in hand. This beach is right off the strip of St. Lawrence Gap.

This is. Very nice beach. It is very walkable. The waves are nice and small clam waves which create nice sound and beautiful photos. You may even find some sea shells
